Roland The Beast1

Roland DG will be showcasing its recently announced 64-inch SOLJET PRO4 XF-640 at this year’s FESPA exhibition. The new XF-640 is the company’s fastest wide format printer to date and has been dubbed ‘the beast’. It incorporates next generation dual print heads, a redesigned take-up and pinch roller systems, plus a host of other advanced features for high quality imaging at a maximum print speed of 102m²/hr.

Designed for both durable and stunning outdoor and indoor applications, the XF-640 is the ideal production tool for signs, banners, vehicle wraps, window graphics, POP displays, exhibition show graphics, posters and more. Roland’s newest eco-solvent inks, Eco-Sol MAX 2, offer an expanded colour gamut as well as fast drying times to boost production and the dual mirrored CMYK ink configuration virtually eliminates banding for consistent colour imaging. Visitors to the show can battle with the XF-640 beast on the Roland stand (P30S) to win prizes.

The XF-640 will also be joined on the stand by Roland’s SOLJET PRO4 XR-640. The 64 inch printer/cutter has been a great commercial success since its launch late last year and visitors to the stand will be able to see both machines in action and speak with Roland’s experts to learn how the PRO4’s series high quality and versatility can boost their business and offer a great return on investment.

Available in both seven and eight ink configurations and compatible with Roland’s latest Eco-Sol MAX 2 ink technology, the XR-640 comes with a choice of nine ink colours – CMYK, light magenta, light cyan, white, metallic silver and light black. Alongside the PRO4 XR-640, the VersaCAMM VS-640 printer/cutter will also be on stand, representing the best-selling VersaCAMM series.

The Roland stand will feature a café serving refreshments so visitors can learn more from the Roland team in a relaxed environment. James Sahota from Essex-based visual communications specialist Group 101, the latest participant in Roland’s “I’m a Roland User” campaign, will also be on hand to give user insight into the brand and share how his Roland machine has helped him expand his business.

Gillian Montanaro, Head of Marketing, Roland DG (UK) comments, “FESPA is a great opportunity for us to reach out to wide format print companies and with two outstanding new machines in the shape of our PRO4 series on the stand, it’s going to be a great show for us. In addition to exhibiting our new flagship models and some of our best-selling machines, we will also be highlighting the great after-sales support Roland offers through our RolandCare warranty service and training courses held at the Roland Academy.”
